Right on cue, T-Mobile has unveiled its newest rate plan addition in the form of a 3000 minute Family Plan for both Even More and Even More Plus customers.  As previously mentioned, some of you may ask why T-Mobile unveiled a rate plan at a price point that’s already offering unlimited minutes?  Of course, not everyone needs unlimited minutes but 1500 just isn’t enough.  On top of that, currently both Even More and Even … [read full article]

Mossberg Reviews T-Mobile’s HSPA+ Network

Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg (yes, him), took some time out of his busy Apple dominated schedule to review the less interesting parts of wireless networks.  That less interesting part being the actual network.  In his test, he compared the new 3G iPhone 4 with the MyTouch Slide and the webConnect Rocket with Verizon’s UM175 modem.  He found that T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network beat the competition in all the tests.  … [read full article]
